      Hi Marcus,

      The design of the SteelSeries Rival is mainly for the medium-to-large hand sized users. It would be totally comfortable for you if your hands are medium-sized. Make sure to check the full review of the Rival 300 before you make a decision. Here it goes –

    Wheres logitech, cougar?

    Why would you rate the sensei among the best gaming mouse if the sensor has negative acceleration not many can get used to?

      Hi Pedro,

      Logitech Cougar series are not optimal for FPS gaming in our opinion, and the acceleration on the SteelSeries Sensei can be, in fact, repressed to a certain point.

    Razer’s Avago 3988/3989 >> Zowie’s Avago 3310. Surprised you listed the Zowie mice as having better sensor performance.

      In our testing methodology, Zowie mice proved to be THE most precise when it comes to micro-movements and quick snaps to certain points. Although, the difference is barely notable compared to some other top mice like Rival 300, DA Chroma, Logitech G303 etc.

      Hi Beyan,

      For your hand-size, you could look into the Logitech G303 –

      It is a good mouse for small hands, and especially for claw-grip. Also, another alternative would be the SteelSeries Kana v2.

        Hello, i have been using the great Logitech MX518 for years but i think about getting a new mouse. The old one is still working but sometimes the scrollwheel seems to send info to the pc that i scrolled upwards but i scrolled down to jump and so it happens that i switch weapons in important moments!
        Other thing I noticed is that the mouse is beeping in a high frequency and its really annoying. I mean i hear that sound IN my headphones! (and its not the headphones fault) I want to try something new but I got pretty comfortable with the size and ergonomics so is there something similar to the MX518 thats even better? Doesnt have to be Logitech though.

          You can try the Logitech G502, which has similar shape as the good old MX 518, and it has perfect sensor. if that one is too expensive for you, go for the Logitech G402.

          Also the Rival 300 might be comfortable for you.
